That was a great video interview. Being a new blogger, I try to visit my blogs and leave thoughtful comments, sometimes time is the hardest part for getting back to them. But email is great when it is accessible via a comment. It is just like writing a thank you note in the retail world! Great post!

Great interview. Good advice. I try and do the same thing…go to every commenters blog at least once per week. And here here about the “have nothing nice to say say nothing at all unless asked” advice. Especially at this time of the year with elections I’ve seen some really nasty, hateful and down right rude comments on peoples blogs.

Great interview and great tips! Steph you certainly do seem like such an approachable friendly person, and I’m impressed that you set aside time to visit everyone who comments. I used to and have lost sight of that but now I’m going to make a concerted effort to return to doing that. I actually miss it, I’ve gotten so lost in the “business” aspect of the blog and some of the fun stuff has taken a backseat.

Thanks for the motivation and inspiration.

What a sweet girl Stephanie seems to be. I love blogging, but I too just don’t have the time. I love her idea about setting aside a specific amount of time to comment!

Thanks, great interview!

Great tips. I love Stephanie’s attitude. It’s refreshing.
